No problemo

You can try some, you just might find, you get what you need.

As a candidate for translator to the realm, let me say this about that. You can't make chicken salad from chicken shit. (Even if you started with the chicken salad.)

Fact is that they cannot recall data that has been removed. All that is remotely possible is to have a grasp of the removed frequencies and attempt to harmonically replicate them, then insert back into the mix. Or, in the alternative, enhance the data that remains on an MP3 to fill in some sonic gaps which is simply sound enhancement.

I may be wrong, but I'm of the opinion that the MOTB releases are just that, however they have a full sonic spectrum to begin with. By using aural exciters and some excellent equalizing equipment, they have the capability to bring up sounds that my get lost in the mix.

I for one, have replaced the "player element" of my home stereo with a computer. Toshiba laptop>Phase Linear 400 preamp>Behringer A500 power amp> Altec Lansing Santana II's. I harbor a lot of the SBD's in 256 mp3, just because the source was available at the time. Now, virtually everything I DL is FLAC and use Winamp as the player.

For road trips, I burn CD's or play a Korg Kaossilator while I drive.

It's crucial to melt the plastic at 365F to release the best digital fumes. I scraped my screen cartridges, it's that bad... now I just try and pretend I have something to vaporize... being healthy sucks moose wang.

Yeah, the friend that sent the links to me was expecting me to know, and of course, I don't know shit, but I did know enough to think exactly what you and NC said: you can never go home again.

What I found interesting was they never really describe the spcifics of "how" this return to lossless is achieved. Specifically, how they get BACK the elements that were in essence, trashed, when compressed.

It's because they cannot replace, only replicate. The only technology that could restore lossy compression is a time machine. You'd have to back and slap the encoder and say, "dude, just save it as wav".

I want a micro korg or the alesis micron or better yet the ion... if I afford the andromeda, I'd probably get a moog.
